The Covid-19 pandemic put so many couples through the wringer. Jessica and Ryan postponed their wedding reception with the hopes of having it in the winter. They still wanted to get married on their original date, so last June, they had a very cute micro wedding in Jessica’s mom’s backyard. It, like them, was super sweet.
Darcy and Tyler were the winners of my Hyland Hills wedding fair giveaway and I couldn’t have been luckier that they won. Both as super sweet yet sassy (if you know me that’s a killer trait as I’m queen of sass-a-fras). They’re romantic and playful. They’re down to earth and have dreams for days.
These two lovebirds are as spunky as they are sweet. Caroline and Garvin met at college where they were both theater majors (see? They’re my kind of people!).
Ashley and I have known each other since our elementary school days. We were always next to each other in the year book (alphabetically she was “Bai” and I was “Bak”). We shared many similarities aside from our last names too — we were both very studious (pretty sure she had better grades though), we were both involved with our high school’s publications (she was the yearbook editor in chief and I was the newspaper’s entertainment page editor), and we were both interested in making jewelry (she made MUCH nicer things than I did).
Lauren played such a meaningful role in our wedding, capturing the day in photos that we'll look back on for the rest of our lives. She kept Scott and me calm and sane - Lauren is a miracle worker! She put in 100% effort and gave us her very best, and that means so much to me. Seeing our photographs makes me so excited and so happy that Lauren was with us on this journey.
There was a chunk of time in our wedding planning when we thought we'd go without a professional photographer to save on cost (terrible idea!) but once we met with Lauren, we knew we'd be in good hands. She checked in often and asked questions that got us thinking about other parts of the wedding that we probably would've missed. Lauren captured exactly who we are as a couple!
Lauren and her team are so much fun to work with! She made us feel so comfortable on the day of our wedding, providing both silly and helpful cues to help us relax and be ourselves in our photos. Lauren’s background in dance is super helpful in recognizing simple posture changes that make a big difference, too. Oh, and the photos we got are just stunning!
My husband and I looked FOR MONTHS to find the perfect photographer and after meeting Lauren we knew was the best fit for us. She made our day so much fun and easy. She found little opportunities to make the perfect photo all with a calm ease that comes from someone who has an artistic eye along with experience in understanding the flow of a wedding.
I've been in several weddings and have worked with a multitude of photographers and I never felt as confident as I did with Lauren. I love how professional she is. She helped with the timeline way in advance and we stuck to that timeline the day of. She was also able to professionally and firmly keep unruly family members settled and focused and navigated family drama beautifully!
